The castle is also known as “Westfalian Versailles” or “Münsterländer Versailles”. It is the most prominent Barock building in Westfalia. It once was an early medieval water castle. In the 16th century it was enlarged and better bastioned. Actually the castle is owned by the federated state Northrine-Westphalia. It is in use as financial academy.
